Indiana Jones used an old British Army Gas mask bag with a leather strap. If it's man enough for Indy...

 

http://www.indygear.com/igbag.html

 

 

Was about to suggest exactly the same. I think the fishing vest idea would be a good one too. Post apocalyptic means grabbing what you can find that suits the purpose, so any sort of shoulder bag for big items and a fishing vest would work. Jeans may not be the best thing though. Maybe cargo trousers or work trousers? Something baggy with lots of pockets.

 

That's a bloody great idea. They're cheap as chips and they've got the exact look I'm after, plus- Indy! Cheers chaps :).

 

I've got some cargo trousers, I'll see if I can snag a gas mask bag and try both combinations of trousers. I always skirmish in jeans as I find them really comfortable and seeing as the sites I play at are indoors getting them wet isn't normally a concern. I also reckon if the zombies did arrive chances are I wouldn't be stopping to change out of my jeans lol. If it makes the whole ensemble look better though I'm open to change :D.

I read the description and it said leather strap sold separately. Sods, especially considering the word "leather" was even in the item description! I missed it anyway :(. I've spotted another on ebay so I'll be keeping tabs on that for the next couple of days :).

Coyote shirt and tan rig arrived (I know they don't match, that's the point ;) ) next up on the list is some CB or desert tigerstripe trousers, a CB scrim scarf and some tan gloves. They were out of stock when I ordered the scarf so it'll wait until I get the other stuff.

Quick pic of upper layers of each loadout:

I should get a dump pouch.

Best price I've seen a dump pouch (that isn't a cheap Chinese one) is mine I got for a fiver from Flecktarn. It's only in UCP though and postage will be £4.50.

 

You can get one from China on eBay for around £5-£6 but of course there's at least a month to wait for shipping.

Drop leg dump pouches are much more secure. The Condor ones are excellent quality - I'd say your leg will give up before they do, but to get more than a couple of mags in at once you have to make them lie flat with the curved edge facing your leg (unless they're short, but even then you'd have to place them inside carefully) / the issue is speed of use / you want to be able to just drop a mag in through the slot and forget it, knowing it will still be there when you get back to the safe zone, no matter what crawling around, running, jumping, etc. you might do in between times...

 

The Viper ones are huge and secure - you can just drop mags in and let them find their own settled position. You probably could wreck one through hard use, but not easily. I've put cuts into the top of my two so that I can fit 2 G36 mags locked together into them and that hasn't caused them to rip, so that says something...

 

The open top type are not secure at all. Sure there's a draw string on some, but the top is still basically open and if the draw string was tight enough to make it secure, that would take time to open then close.

I've gone off dump pouches. While they're good for really quick tacticool reloads (provided you have open mag pouches and can actually reload quickly) they normally rattle around and make one hell of a noise.. if you have individual mag pouch or even divided ones I find its often quicker just to put them back in the pouch
